Joining the Alpha Team

We are very excited you are interested in joining our Alpha team! We believe that everyone deserves the right to hear the message of Jesus in a safe and welcoming environment. Our Alpha team is the reason we are able to give people this opportunity! Please see below for the different roles we have on our Alpha team. If you are interested in joining our team or have more specific questions, please contact Andrew in our Evangelization Office by email at andrewm@stjoegold.org or by phone at 303-279-4464.

Hospitality Team

 

Are you someone who enjoys helping behind the scenes? Or do you enjoy cooking for friends and family? Do you enjoy making people feel welcome and at home? Do you have a knack making living rooms or back patios feel welcoming and comfortable? We would love for you to join our team!

 

Our hospitality team is the group of individuals who make sure that our Alpha guests feel welcomed and are fed when they come to an Alpha night. Our hospitality team welcomes our guests as soon as they arrive, helps them find places to sit, and also helps us with the preparation and serving of our meal. Our hospitality team also helps design and set-up our meeting room so that it is comfortable and welcoming. Although most of the work our hospitality team does is behind the scenes, they are one of the most critical pieces of our Alpha night.

Conversation Team

 

Are you someone who loves hosting conversation at dinner parties? Do you enjoy getting to know new people and hearing about their story? Are you motivated to help others experience the love of God through your patience and listening? We would love for you to join our team!

 

Our conversation team is the group of people who host our guests once they’ve found a table at which to sit. Each table group has one host and one helper from our conversation team. The role of an Alpha host is to spend the evening with our alpha guests, help them feel welcome, and host the conversation at their table. The role of the helper is to help (hence the name) the host in whatever way they are needed to make our Alpha guests feel welcomed and loved. The conversations we host at an Alpha night are not focused on giving people answers to their questions about faith, so you don’t need to have any formal theological training to be a host. What we do need from our hosts and helpers are individuals who love people and are able to help people feel appreciated and loved. Conversations in Alpha are meant to be a safe place for people to ask deep and sometimes personal questions about God and Christianity. Our table hosts and helpers are there to make sure our guests know that there is no such thing as a “bad question” and that God loves them no matter where they are at in their faith.
